The Braves are bringing in Soler as the designated hitter, and moving Albies down the order as a result of this inclusion. Atlanta is -170 as a 1.5-run underdog and +115 as a moneyline underdog, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The Braves hold a 3-2 lead over the Astros and are hoping to close out the World Series Tuesday night.
